Palace Dance Studio

Session 1 classes for our 2022-2023 season will culminate in a student showcase on November 20th at the Rex Theatre. Not all classes will perform in the showcase, please take note of the class descriptions.

3, 4 and 5-year-old Intro to Dance (1 hour) 

This class is all about introducing our youngest students to the fun world of dance! These classes are divided into several short activities, focusing on creative movement and fun! This is a great introduction to flexibility, dance class etiquette, and friendly cooperation with classmates. This kind of creative self-expression is an important part of developmental growth and the confidence and discipline they will gain will stay with them as they explore the world outside our classroom! Class will culminate in a short choreographed performance in a student showcase at the end of each session. Please note that all dancers must be potty trained before joining.

The Tap/Jazz/Ballet hybrid class is for students in grades 1-5.

These classes all follow a similar structure but are designed to meet the individual needs of each student while taking into account their emotional maturity and attention span. These classes will culminate in a jazz and tap routine to be performed in a student showcase at the end of each session.
